Governor's Veto Message
To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am returning Assembly Bill 2552 without my signature.

This bill requires certain ballot instructions and the Secretary of State to establish a ballot design advisory committee.

In recent years, California's ballot and ballot pamphlet have become a hodgepodge of confusing, excessive and often redundant words and explanations. The Secretary of State -- with or without a committee -- should fix this festering problem. A bill is not necessary.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
